New iPhone 2018 release date, price & specs rumours

Apple’s iPhone update in the autumn of 2018 could see three or even four new iPhones launched at the same time, and fans can’t wait to hear the announcements.

In this article we look at all the rumours concerning the successor to the iPhone X, and the expected larger iPhone X Plus (which a new report thinks will have triple rear-facing camera lenses): their release date, prices, design changes, tech specs and new features. There are also rumours that Apple will be introducing a new LCD model that will look like the iPhone X, but come at an entry-level price.

We’ve got the latest leaked photos, leaked design schematics, and a source predicting that this LCD model will be available in blue, yellow and pink. (But probably not purple and green.)

For advice related to the current lineup, read our iPhone buying guide and roundup of the best iPhone deals.

Details remained to be hammered out, including the exact route of The Chicago Express Loop. But Musk told a news conference that the project could break ground as early as four months from now, pending regulatory reviews, and be completed in three years or less.
